Republican vice presidential nominee Paul Ryan spent part of the afternoon on Thursday right here in the Bluff City.
The congressman spoke at a fundraiser at the Racquet Club in East Memphis. The private event was held to raise funds for the Romney campaign as he tries to unseat President Obama.
Fox13 was not allowed inside the event.
Memphis was the second stop of the day for Ryan. He was in Knoxville earlier on Thursday where Republican Governor Bill Haslam introduced him.
The fundraisers were $1,000 per plate. In Knoxville, Ryan raised about $1,000,000.
